Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs charged with misconduct by FA


Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association.

The charge relates to an incident which occurred after the Midlands club drew 2-2 with Newcastle United on 28 October.

“It’s alleged that his language towards a match official in the tunnel after the final whistle was improper and/or abusive and/or insulting,” said the FA.

Hobbs has until Monday, 6 November to respond to the charge.

Newcastle were awarded a controversial penalty in the draw at Molineux when Hwang Hee-chan was deemed to have fouled Fabian Schar, before Magpies striker Callum Wilson scored from the spot to put his side 2-1 up.

Anthony Taylor was the referee for the game, with Jarred Gillett the video assistant referee.

“I thought it was a terrible on-field decision and I thought it was unbelievably surprising that it wasn’t overturned,” said Wolves boss Gary O’Neil after the game.

“More disappointment. I feel like I waste my time speaking [to the officials] so I will stop speaking to them.

“Until they improve the level of what they produce, I have no time for them.”
